Hannah's 17th Birthday Portraits

My lovely sister, Hannah, turned 17 years old yesterday!!

Two days ago my cousins, Kaitlyn and Sarah, were over and Kaitlyn decided to straighten Hannah's hair.  (Not an easy task, if you've seen my sister's voluminous amounts of hair!! ;)

After over an hour of straightening, Kaitlyn and Lexi dressed and "beautified" Hannah. :)  Next, of course, came the pictures! :)

I have a slight obsession with Hannah's eyelashes...they are so long! :)

 So pretty!!

This is Hannah's genuine, all-natural smile. :)

The big bay window in our room made for some beautiful portraits! :) :)

We call this the "model look." ;)

It was lots of fun posing Hannah and laughing with her throughout our mini photo-shoot.  Kaitlyn and Lexi were great helps to me in holding up backgrounds and keeping Hannah laughing (which isn't hard to do :).

It was Kaitlyn's idea to put our green avocado plant behind Hannah for some of the pictures.  The plant added a nice, natural touch! ;)

Isn't she pretty?! :)

What's even better about Hannah is that she's even more gorgeous on the inside!!  She has a huge heart for the people around her and she loves Jesus Christ so much!  She daily demonstrates efficiency and kindness in our family and loves helping Daddy with anything he needs.  From the Master Chinese Chef in our family to the first person up every day, she quietly leads by example.

I will never, ever ask for a better older sister...because there is none to be found.  I love you Hannah and wish you a wonderful yet belated 17th birthday!
